Stevenson Hosts Open Meeting on Fisheries

Last night’s open meeting with Fisheries Secretary Richard Lochhead in Fraserburgh has been hailed a success by Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson.

Mr Stevenson, who hosted the event, had approached Mr Lochhead with the suggestion of an open ‘Question Time’ style meeting to coincide with the visit of the Scottish Cabinet to Fraserburgh. Mr Lochhead readily agreed and his Government office circulated details of the meeting to various fisheries organisations.

Around 50 people attended the meeting, which was held in Findlay’s Hotel.

Commenting afterwards, Stewart Stevenson said:

“I’m very pleased that Richard Lochhead agreed to my suggestion to take part in such a meeting. The idea originally arose out of a conversation with one of my constituents on fishing issues and I thought it would be a useful thing to do.

“The Scottish Cabinet held a meeting in Fraserburgh earlier in the day and it seemed like a good opportunity to arrange something.

“I was very pleased with the turnout which saw questions on a range of fishing issues being answered by Richard Lochhead and a useful exchange of views which I am sure the Cabinet Secretary will take on board. All in all, I think this was a very useful exercise.”
